  • Do not try to connect any other Power Supply other than supplied along with i.MX 91 DevKit.
  • Contact iWave, if power LEDs are not glowing.

Boot screen

User must go through “Software User Guide” and get familiar with software section of iW-RainboW-G50M-i.MX 91 SOM.

Operating System Support

Power is applied to the DevKit & once the boot get success, depending upon the supported Operating systems and boot loader on particular Delivery, boot messages being prompted in the terminal window as shown below. Press Enter key in terminal and done with test environment setup on particular delivery.
